2021 seems like a good year for Sweet Tooth fans! Netflix adapted the series in April 2020 and handed it down to Team Downey to bring it to life.
Jeff Lemire, the man behind the Sweet Tooth comic series, confirmed that the Netflix series has wrapped up its filming process. Fans can expect the release sometime this year. The announcement came in his newsletter titled “HAPPY NEW YEAR – THINGS TO COME.”
“The Netflix Sweet Tooth TV show recently completed filming and will be released sometime this year!” Jeff wrote in his newsletter on January 4, 2021.
In July 2020, Lemire mentions how happy he was with the series’s pilot episode, which was being shot in New Zealand.
“I couldn’t be more pleased with the adaptation. It’s super faithful to the comic and I can’t wait for the show to launch,” the newsletter was titled, “New Sweet Tooth series and more.”
Sweet Tooth is produced by Warner Bros. TV and DC entertainment. Team Downey (Robert Downey Jr. and Susan Downey), Amanda Burell, Jim Mickle, and Beth Schwartz are the executive producers of the live-action series. Mickle and Schwartz also serve as showrunners.
The series will star Christian Convery, Nonso Anozie, and Adeel Akhtar, to name a few, along with James Brolin acting as a narrator.
The live-action series will run for eight episodes in its first season. It is centered around Gus, a half human-half Deer hybrid being, as he leaves his house, only to see that a cataclysmic event ravages the world outside his home.
Sweet Tooth will show us Gus’s journey as he joins a group of hybrid beings who are just like him, in search of answers about this new world. And, of course, to solve the mystery behind his hybrid origin.
